New research from NASA yields information on what's causing the grooves in the surface of Mars' moon Phobos.
The Mars orbiter called MAVEN has newly revealed data: The speed of the solar wind around Mars and how it has transformed the climate of the red planet.
If you've always wanted to wear that space suit and try out the espresso machine in the international space station, or (merely) to contribute to research about the Red Planet, now's your chance to get that application in on time.
In The Martian, astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) uses his knowledge of botany to successfully grow potatoes and lengthen his food supply while stranded on Mars. While his methods are sound, researchers are curious about whether it could actually be done.
A few Mars locations are possible sites of further exploration by the Mars Science Laboratory. These include Gale Crater and Eberswalde Crater. One is an ancient river delta, another has a mountain and many mineral layers, including water-indicating clay.
Man is one step closer to setting foot on the Red Planet, according to NASA. The space agency, which recently announced the historic discovery of flowing water on Mars, has just announced an updated plan for 'The Journey to Mars.'
University of Kansas researchers recently published findings on 50 million-year-old rocks and their microbial remnants in a river formation that runs through Utah, Colorado and Wyoming. They say that for Mars, their study reveals some new clues to seek out.
New research involving dark streaks on hillsides and salt deposits is the strongest evidence so far, say researchers, that Mars currently has flowing water.
University of Gothenburg researchers recently found a double crater in Sweden that suggests a unique twin meteorite event occurred 458 million years ago. This is the first proven occurrence of such an event.
A planetary scientist explains that, with some adaptations, life-forms similar to Earth's could live on other planets' environments as well.
What next, land-speed events on an ancient salt flat on Mars? Or more research?
On Earth, opals often form near hot springs. Also, microbes could possibly be found within opals.
Thrills and suspense are the last things you'd associate with a science book, but Peter Ward and Joe Kirschvink's A New History of Life delivers plenty of both.
Glass deposits discovered in impact craters on the surface of Mars may hold signs of ancient life, adding to the growing evidence that the Red Planet was once habitable.
